Meghan Markle news: Future King William 'must pick up the phone' to Prince Harry & 'show leadership' to protect monarchy | The Sun

PRINCE William must pick up the phone to brother Prince Harry if he wants the monarchy to survive, an expert has claimed.

The Duke of Cambridge is still "deeply upset" about Harry and Meghan quitting the Royal Family, a friend of the future King said last month.

And Royal expert Duncan Larcombe told the Daily Beast: “If William wants to be a future king, a great leader giving inspiring addresses about the environment to two billion people, then the public are within their rights to expect him to be able to sort out a frankly pretty minor dispute with his brother. He has to start showing some leadership here.

“Eventually, William will have to pick up the phone. Harry doesn’t have to; he can just be a polo player with a gorgeous wife.”

He added: “The onus is on William. If he really does believe he is the chap chosen by god to be king, then he should be capable of sorting out this row with his brother.

“William has got a lot more to lose than Harry. The monarchy could be lost on his watch. That’s Harry’s ace in the hole," he noted.

    Thomas Markle never planned to see Meghan and Harry

    The 77-year-old father of three was unable to attend the jubilee due to a stroke.

    Meghan reportedly wants to make amends with her estranged father amid fears he may not be alive for much longer.

    But Thomas Markle claims he never had any intention of meeting with Meghan and Harry: “I had a stroke and was unable to attend the Jubilee and I am still recovering, but it was my intention to come to pay my respect to the Queen, the royals, and the British people.

    “I was invited to the Jubilee by Dan Wootton and Lady C and other friends in Britain, I did not plan on seeing my daughter and Harry.”

    Harry & Meghan’s pal reveals new royal slogan, after the firm ‘ditched’ ‘never complain never explain’

    The Royal Family has long used the guarded approach, staying silent on matters with the potential to spark controversy or upset.

    But the times are changing and, seemingly, so are the royals.

    Now, many suggest that “if the royal family have something to say, they should say it.”

    And journalist Omid Scobie, who penned the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s biography Finding Freedom, believes a new strategy is already creeping in.

    Writing for Yahoo!news, Scobie said: “Never complain, never explain may slowly be becoming a thing of the past at the palace (well, according to Prince William at least), but a different order of the day has quickly risen within the institution of the monarchy: deflect and distract.

    “You see, when the Prince of Wales was forced to announce via his spokesman that he will never again accept plastic bags filled with €500 notes for his charities, one of his senior aides also briefed journalists with adorable details of the heir’s first time meeting granddaughter Lilibet last month.”

    Meghan and Harry set on different paths, expert claims

    The royal couple are set to travel down different roads, Neil Sean has noted.

    Meghan has set her heart on the White House, as she begins her career in politics, while Harry has become somewhat of a “house husband.”

    Speaking on his YouTube channel, Mr Sean claimed: “As we’ve found out Meghan Markle says that she definitely will be going to Washington to support the causes that are close to her heart.

    “While she said previously that she doesn’t demand or require a political career, it seems more and more that Meghan shines in the spotlight moving forward in a totally different avenue.

    “Prince Harry, the real royal, seems to be stepping back and becoming something of a househusband.”

    Exclusive: Inside the mystery sale of Prince Andrew’s abandoned mansion

    Sunninghill Park, the half-constructed mansion once owned by Prince Andrew, remains empty, almost a decade since its sale to a Kazakh oligarch.

    The sale was shrouded in mystery, and some believe some unscrupulous dealings may have taken place.

    The Duke of York sold his and Sarah Ferguson‘s former six-bedroom love nest Sunninghill Park in 2007 for £15m to billionaire oligarch Timur Kulibayev, son-in-law of Kazakh dictator Nursultan Nazarbayev.

    This was despite the property being on the market for £12million.

    This led to questions being asked about Andrew’s close ties to the Kazakhstan regime, which was known for its brutal rule.

    But now, seven years on, the property remains abandoned and incomplete, with no change in sight.

    A neighbour told the Sun Online: “I don’t know who is there. It’s not been sold recently. It’s still in the development phase. 

    “We’ve only been here two and a half years and it’s been like that the whole time.”

    Meghan accused of inserting ‘British drama into American politics’

    Meghan Markle, who is well known for her progressive views, has been criticised by an anonymous US politician for her words on Roe Vs Wade.

    Roe Vs Wade has ensured for decades that women have the right to bodily autonomy in terms of abortion.

    However, in recent weeks, the Supreme Court announced their decision to repeal womens’ right to abortion.

    Meghan has been very vocal in her criticism of this choice.

    However, an anonymous US congressman has come out saying: “This is just another attempt from the ex-royals to insert their British drama into American politics.

    “I don’t think anyone on this side of the pond cares for Meghan Markle’s opinion on killing babies.”

    Speaking to the Daily Mail, he added: “However, I think her running for President would be a great episode for The Crown.”
